Back to black
You can never really go wrong with the
basics, though, so set about securing a nice black or other neutral-hued purse

In your clutches
Sleek and chic, a well-paired clutch is
always appropriate for any nighttime event. Best of all? This is one type of
formalwear that will never go out of fashion, so go ahead and invest. Use a

your cash! Think about it: other bags get switch out based on the occasion, but
your wallet goes everywhere with you. Luckily, there are plenty of adorable
options to choose from.
